Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at the famous horseshoe bend in Germany called Saarschleife.
Time
Waking up uncountable times at 4am and getting ready and after going to the viewpoint this day, I ultimately found the conditions I was looking for when the sun was rising.
Lighting
After the sun was slowly rising, I waited until it was shining through the trees, so I was able to capture a splendid sunburst.
Equipment
Shot this photo on a Canon 5D Mark III with a Canon EF 16-35 f2.8L II on a Induro Carbon tripod with a cable release to reduce vibrations while shooting.
Inspiration
As I grew up close to this place, I spent many days in the surrounding forests since I was a child. I always wanted to capture the mood as I felt it being there in the morning.
Editing
After shooting this scene as a panorama out of 5 vertical parts , I had to stitch it together in Photoshop. To keep the whole dynamic range during sunrise, each part of the panorama was blended from three bracketed photos.
In my camera bag
I usually have two or three camera bodies in my bag, which is a Canon 5D Mark III as my main body and a Fujifilm XT-2 as backup and walk around camera for longer hikes and a Canon 6D as a full frame backup and for time-lapse work, which I can use natively with Canon Lenses. I mostly use the Canon EF 16-35 f2.8L II as my main lens for Landscapes, while I also usually carry a Canon EF 70-200 f2.8L IS II for closer details, a Sigma 35 f1.4 Art for other scenes such as lifestyle shots and portraiture. On the Fujifilm XT-2 i only use prime lenses such as the Fujifilm XF 56 f1.2 for details and portraiture or the Fujifilm XF 16 f1.4 for wider scenes on longer hikes when I want to go lightweight.
Feedback
When it comes to Landscape Photography, you will want to shoot scenic places in special conditions like sunrise or sunset, which help to create a more dramatic feel in your images. Be aware that these times of the day may need a more advanced coverage of the dynamic range, as you often shoot directly into the sun. Being early also helps to avoid going through crowds of people at scenic places which are usually very busy during the daytime. Most tourists won't get up that early to visit a place, unless they are photographers or just want to be alone.
